Bad Company 2 Sells Five Million, FIFA Sells A Lot More

EA’s modern-day shooter Battlefield Bad Company 2 may not have been able to stand toe-to-toe with competitor Modern Warfare 2, but it’s accounted for itself regardless, selling an impressive five million copies. A feat FIFA 10 was able to double.

EA revealed the sales figures earlier today, saying that Bad Company 2’s sales “outperformed” the company’s own estimates. They’re nothing compared to FIFA 10’s performance, however, EA Sports’ new flagship title showing that when you marry marketing, official licenses and great gameplay, you’re rewarded with sales of over ten million units since the game’s launch in October 2009.

Indeed, so entrenched is FIFA’s success that spin-off title World Cup 2010 has already sold two million copies, this despite the fact the actual World Cup is still a month away.

Interestingly, those were the only three games whose actual sales figures were highlighted. It was noted that Madden 10 and Need For Speed: Shift had sold over four million units, while no figures were disclosed for Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age or Dante’s Inferno.


  • Go EA! Thats all i can think right now.
    I can only imagine that Mass Effect 2 has very healthy sales considering the charts it topped and that i sold 2 million in its first week. Word of mouth and critical reception were better than anything else i’ve played this year.

    I really hope this year or financial year is the year EA knocks off Activision.

    I still think Bad Company 2 has sold very well. I think thats more or nearly more than the original and definitely with the let down that MW2 was for a lot of core gamers, EA picked up a lot of fans from that as Bad Company 2 delivered a lot that they wanted.

    Medal of Honour – being the front runner back in the day, i can imagine would sell more upon release.
